The Turkish artist’s latest project, 'Midnight Occults', casts a spell and takes you to an unfamiliar listening experience.
Fulfilling a sense of celestial order amidst chaos as hinted in the project title, KAOSMOS’ new album, Midnight Occults, cuts through the noise and situates listeners on a personal, dark plane.
The Istanbul artist, whose real name is Filiz Sert, masterfully fuses unnatural, clashing sounds, so you can be forgiven for mistaking the album with a performance in sorcery, for it hypnotises with an unfamiliar ritualistic harmony before leading to a stormy climax.
Midnight Occults shows us that profound communication doesn’t depend on words. In essence, the album’s defining achievement is allowing a sense of mutual participation that transcends the contemporary, common limits of physically or socially-distanced digital experiences.
